Research Radio Episode 4 is now live! Check it out here:


A Chinese scientist claims to have created the first ever gene-edited babies and is now facing intense international backlash. How did he do it? What did he exactly “edit”, and why? To find out, join Isidora, a recent MSc graduate, Research Radio podcast director and sponsorship coordinator, as she interviews Dr. Janet Rossant to explore the exciting and controversial world of CRISPR/Cas9-mediated human genome editing. With special commentary from PhD student Sally Kyunga Kim.

Research Radio is a podcast produced by graduate students in the Department of Physiology at the University of Toronto. Each month, we release 1-2 episodes highlighting a graduate student or faculty member's research, and talking about all things grad life and pop culture! Our fourth episode is now live!
